Industry Events


Our flagship conference, Modeling and Optimization: Theory and Applications (MOPTA), held every August since 2009, is a great forum to exchange research discoveries. A new 1-2 day event, iMOPTA, is held every year, to present and discuss industrial innovation and the research behind it. Major goals include identifying new industry partners and participating in setting new industry standards. The event nurtures more applied research collaboration and exposes our accomplishments and industrial potential to the outside world.


The Healthcare Systems Engineering Program runs a very successful series of annual Healthcare Systems Engineering Symposiums since 2014, in collaboration with the Lehigh Valley Business Coalition on Healthcare (LVBCH), on the challenges of healthcare, from delivery systems and cost structure to inequitable access and mental health. These events foster interdisciplinary collaboration by bringing the systems perspective to complex healthcare subjects.
